Tough Choices (West Lothian Council Proposals)

Filed under: Linlithgow Business Association — derryvickers @ 8:16 pm

As I read the Tough Choice figures the comparison of expenditure (£,000)  2010/11 with 2103/14 is

  2010/11 2013/14 % Saving
Partnerships& resources 19,975 16398 17.91
Education 146238 138006 5.63
Culture & Leisure 15,165 12664 16.49
Social Policy 81,620 77462 5.09
Health & Care 1,169 941 19.5
Voluntary Organisations 4,074 3,505 13.97
Services for the Community 2,594 1,958 24.52
Environment 48,155 42,023 12.73
Development & Transport 9,008 6,991 22.39
Total 327,998 299,948 8.55

 

Looking at these figures the highest expenditure is for education followed by social policy. 

Workers in both these areas are already ‘outsourced’ and are much less amenable for 4 day working.

Also note that these are the least cut.  Service for the Community and Transport and development come out worst
